-am a Family and Small Business Photographer. I reside in the Minneapolis area. I adore what I do and am beyond passionate about it. (I’ll tell you ALL about my passion anytime you want to listen. I tend to ramble. 🙂 )
-taught art at the elementary and middle school level for years. I also taught preschool for a long time. The kids, all the mess, all the yelling and all the chaos, never stressed me out…not even once. (My coworkers…now THAT’S another story.)
-always cut my own bangs (usually with a glass of wine in hand) because I always think it will look AMAZING. It never does. It always makes my face look chubby and strange.
-have kids and I love it when they’re all home and their friends are over and it’s total chaos. I love a full house. (Though I curse the mess when they all leave again…)
-adore good, black, coffee, most wines, several whiskeys and a few beers. (Not all at the same time though. I usually choose two a day.)
-work part time for a local floral and candy store (along with my camera, of course). I love it. I go to work and take photos of things I adore. Plus, there’s a dog grooming school next door so I get to photograph puppies, from time-to-time, too. How cool is that!? (EDIT: And NOW, there is a microbrewery moving in next door.)
-love cakes and cookies. Sometimes…I replace meals with cookies. (With milk for my protein, of course.)
-love the idea of fanny packs. I wish they were cool and didn’t make me look so frumpy. They’re just so simple and easier than always carrying around a purse on my shoulder. (EDIT: I totally just bought one. It has multiple ‘packs’ on it and is AWESOME! Why I waited so long to do this…I have no idea.)
